Cotton candy & hops nose. Strong bittering hops, rich malt - almost to right but I dig it. A hint of alcohol @ the finish w. more rich malt. Almost borders on a strong ale. Sparky (2244) - Phoenix, Arizona, USA - AUG 16, 2008
On tap at Scottsdale location. Cask version. Pours a medium amber with off-white head and great lacing. Nose is caramel malt, grapefruit and pine. Taste is pretty much the same as the aroma. Medium, creamy mouth feel. Really good. Beerlando (3343) - Orlando, Florida, USA - SEP 15, 2008
Handbottle from FlacoAlto. Pours a crystal clear, medium golden-amber color. A small, foamy white head settles to a patchy, bubbly layer, scattered micro-spots of lace marking the glass. The aroma shows bright, hoppy citrus notes of grapefruit, orange, and lemon over a light bed of toasty bread notes and delicate toffee. The flavor is the mirror image of the nose, a lightly sweet, toasty malt backdrop with a fresh blend of citrusy hops. Excellent drinkability and supreme balance without any annoying astringency. Medium-light bodied and moderately carbonated, this one goes down really easy. There aren’t many bells and whistles, but sometimes well-executed simplicity is best. Great session IPA. fordest (2469) - Santee/San Diego, California, USA - SEP 16, 2008
Pint at 1702 with FlacoAlto. Very fruity and hoppy on the nose. Malt in there too. Flavors were more citrus hops with grapefruit and tangerine and a rather floral finish. Pretty good. bleeng (1705) - Houston not near Beersel., Texas, USA - JAN 17, 2009
UPDATED: JAN 13, 2011 On tap at the brewpub 1/13/09. Light gold color and heavily filtered. Small white head. Nose is floral with more hop profile than the Raj IPA. Taste comes off very hoppy and bitter with a small malt background. Mouth is full, fluffy and sharp. I prefer the Raj IPA to this one.

ahh, this must have been added into the database by squidget(Sebastian). He and I sampled this brew at the same time. This brew has a wonderful citrus aroma full of pineapple, grapefruit and tangerine. Unfortunately, the aroma was the best thing about this brew-pretty one dimensional. not much malt to speak of, but thats definately not what this sytle of brew is about. Good one dimensional brew nontheless Steib (613) - Queen Creek, Arizona, USA - JAN 13, 2004
Big hop character. Bitterness is balanced nicely. Fairly light in color, decent sized head. A nice cross between a IPA and a pale ale. Hope this becomes a regular beer. Bockyhorsey (2638) - Mesa, Arizona, USA - MAR 17, 2005
UPDATED: NOV 20, 2005 The citrus hop aroma flavor made this a good beer. Good carbination and lacing. Has to be one of the better beers I’ve had lately. Went down easy on the palate.

11/15/05 Had three of these at a golf event and had to re-rate the aroma because it had more of a bold citrus aroma and flavor as the first rating was sampler and this was full beer.
On tap. This ale pours a light orange gold color. Small sized white foamy head. Aroma is citrusy and earthy. A medium bodied Pale Ale/IPA. Malts are caramel and sweet, touch of toffee. Hops are citrusy and floral. A touch earthy as well. Nice balance. This beer tastes like a cross between an American Pale Ale, a India Pale Ale and an Amber. Hoppy without a lot of hop bitterness, with a fair amount of malt sweetness. Definitely not to any style, but an interesting beer. Mouthfeel is full. Finish is clean and smooth. Aftertaste is slightly sweet.
